Gnome 3.0: Activity Journal out, Shell in

By   |  June 9, 2010

With Gnome 3.0 scheduled for release later this year the developers are starting to make the tough decisions on what will be included in the release and what won’t.

The first big decisions have already been made and will see some of the major components of the refreshed desktop being held back.

Vincent Untz, release manager for the Gnome community, earlier this month outlined the modules that would be included in the first release of Gnome 3.0.

Activity Journal out

Of the modules being rejected for this initial release the biggest is the Gnome Activity Journal. Also known as Zeitgeist, the Gnome Activity Journal is a tool that allows users to search their data and files using dates, tags, relationships and a range of other meta information. The Gnome Activity Journal was very much part of the promise of Gnome 3.0 to make it easier for users to manage ever-increasing data loads.

Untz says that while the “original design idea [of Gnome Activity Journal] is one we want to see happen during Gnome 3 development [it] needs more integration with the rest of the desktop and the overall Gnome design. Right now, it feels too much like a standalone application.”

Also out is Clutter, a library for creating visually-rich animated graphical interfaces. Untz said that Clutter was not yet part of the Gnome infrastructure and that there were still some issues around its copyright assignment.

Gnome Shell in

Good news, though, is that Gnome Shell is listed in the accepted modules. The Gnome Shell provides a new way of managing open windows and applications and switching between them. Gnome Shell is a key part of the Gnome 3.0 desktop and breaks significantly with previous versions of Gnome in how it manages windows and applications.

Gnome 3.0 is scheduled to be released in September this year.
